I'll be the first to admit that I give Kanye West a hard time…and it's often undeserved. It started with his horrific interruption when Taylor Swift was winning her MTV Award, and it continued on through unbecoming behavior in the media. Let's be honest…his crystal mask didn't help my opinion of him either.
That said, I've found the tiny rapper to be quite entertaining in his relationship with Kim Kardashian and how he interacts with her famous family. He dresses her to amuse us, he wants her to be more private (seriously, huge props for that one, Yeezy!), and he totally undermines Kris Jenner's baby peddling ways at every turn. It's pretty awesome. That said, I think he'll be a pretty swell dad. Dare I say that I think having a daughter will mature him beyond words. Kanye, don't disappoint!
We all know that Kim Kardashian loves a photo opportunity, and it makes her mother Kris Jenner oh so proud! Of course, now that Kim's with Kanye West, he's reigned in Kim in the photo famewhoring (to a small extent) realm.
The couple is still followed by the paparazzi as Kim models maternity wear, but what will happen once their daughter is born? While most tabloids will be vying for pics of the newborn, one magazine reportedly wants Kim for its cover. Not surprisingly, it's a gentlemen's read.
Good gracious, y'all! Nothing ever slows down if you're one of the Kardashians. First up, Bruce Jenner finally gets some press time is getting heat from step-daughter Kim Kardashian for not being Kanye West's biggest fan. His wife, Kris Jenner can't be bothered with such nonsense as she's too busy perfecting the ins and outs of her upcoming talk show. Yes, that's really going to happen.
At least there is some good news in sight for Kim. Her divorce from Kris Humphries, which seemed like it would never happen, has been finalized. The couple is no longer legally betrothed, so you can go ahead and delete their multi-million dollar nuptials from your DVR. As much as Kris Humphries wishes it never legally happened, it did, but it's over…and you can purge it from your cache. I just did.
The ratings did not disappoint! 2.84 Million people watched RHONJ in the original 8PM airing! That's impressive for a premiere. Ratings usually increase as the season progresses.
Ratings for seasons 3 & 4 of the show were steadily in the 2.6 million mark per episode with the season 4 reunion yanking in over 3.4 million gawkers. Everyone wanted to see Jacqueline Laurita lose it in person, apparently!
A slew of sort-of-boring celebrities turned out for the garden party soiree held in Beverly Hills. The only interesting guest on Kim's list was Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. The rest included Kelly Osbourne, Maria Menounos, and her trainer Tracy Anderson.
Of course her sisters Kourtney and Khloe were there, along with Lamar Odom. Kanye West did show up, but arrived with his face and head completely covered with a hoodie as he made his way inside.
Kim says that it's exactly as Kanye had hoped. "I’m so excited we’re having a girl. Who doesn’t want a girl? I think they are the best. I know that’s really what Kanye has always wanted — he wanted a little girl.”
What do you think about Kim making the announcement on the show? Did it get you to tune in tonight?
Only a few more weeks of Kim Kardashian maternity fashion! Once baby Kimye arrives, what on Earth will we do with our extra time and photo budget $$? Oh yeah, we'll be watching for her post-baby fashion fails – courtesy of Kanye.
When you're a Kardashian, life lessons aren't the same as they are for us normal folk. For example, if I assaulted a paparazzo and stole her expensive camera (complete with a memory card containing celebrity photos allegedly worth thousands of dollars), I'd be in jail. Yes, jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Of course, in this scenario, someone would have to be following me around and taking my picture…which would mean I was at least semi-famous (a girl can dream!)…
However, if you're Rob Kardashian and you do the same, you end up with a slap on the wrist…if you could even call it that!
